Hot Chocolate Affogato for Loved Ones

In December I will have hot chocolate at least 2-3 times a week. I'm not kidding, I go all out and buy ALL the mixes possible. I always have a stack of sugar cane stirrers & hot chocolate toppings for when I want a really cozy night in.

Which reminds me, if you are a hot chocolate lover, you need to check out this Buzzfeed article --> 12 Decadent Hot Chocolate Recipes


It is of my humble opinion that hot chocolate must be made with whole milk. I also love to have my hot chocolate super creamy so I make sure to add in a bunch of marshmallows AND some peppermint ice-cream. 


There's nothing that gets me more in the Christmas spirit than hot chocolate!




Last year I also made this absolutely perfect Christmas hot chocolate affogato. For this I actually looked up a homemade hot chocolate recipe and made the espresso whipped cream myself as well. As you can totally tell, I get very real with my hot chocolate. 

Now go and make your hot chocolate and enjoy with your loved ones! 

Do you have a particular hot chocolate recipe you like to make?

Oh! Yum! I love hot chocolate. I added some icecream last week to my cup, and it was delicious. I have to try it with peppermint!

I think I'm one of the few people that actually doesn't like to drink hot chocolate! I'd rather mix it up like brownie mix and eat it like that! (weird I know)

How adorable are you?! I also love hot chocolate- the dark chocolate is my favorite! I'll have to try this with some dairy-free ice cream.

My favorite hot chocolate is when it is spiked with Bailey's.... makes my favorite "cocktail" ;-)

WHY oh WHY have I never thought to put ice cream in my hot chocolate? And peppermint ice cream at that. What a genius idea! Your recipe sounds amazing!

I love drinking chocolate! It's a bit thicker than hot chocolate and less milky but still great. These pictures make me feel so festive.
